I'm going to be in a magazine!
      #134834 - 02/23/05 02:56 PM

Well, this is something different! About 10-12 months ago, a writer came onto this board and asked if anyone wanted to share their "Living w/ HIV" story. I've always felt like my life should be used as a teaching tool for other young women, I e-mailed her. She was legit (thank goodness), and started interviewing me. Well, after a long process, the article will be in APRIL's issue of SELF magazine.

I'm a little nervous; I saw the 'almost-completed' version, and it's a little scary to see my life in black-&-white like that. But hopefully, it'll do some good.

It should be out in about a month. I want reports on what everyone thinks!

Allright Erica!!!!!!!!!

You go girl . Thats absolutely fab.. Is there any way to get it posted for all to see. Thats wonderful
and you'll feel so great that you may find yourself reaching out even more.

I've gone on a few speaking things for teens maybe you can get a thread going and see what the kids think nowadays. Mine was 5 yrs approx. ago but kids change quick some to good some not so thats why your reaching out is so very important. And good thing being caucious. What out to the responses your children good or bad . So till we cross again take care and stay well.....PS Can I have your autograph......lol

Me again, I come up with various ideas and your article reminded me of one . Afriend who always talkes of this book shes writing, a life bio like, well i told her she should do a version of our own group of women . Hey I didn't say I was Doing it , my hands are busy with my own outreach. Well It was just one of those things as ones day dreaming . Hubby says it' too much time on hands now that im semi retired. Well gotta ramble right out ogf here. Agaian take care and stay well

Thanks for the kind words. When the article comes out, I'll see if there's a link for it. Otherwise, you'll have to spend the $3 and go to the store and buy it. =) And don't forget to spread the word! I'd hate for the only person to read this thing be MY MOM.

Tee-hee! I'll keep you updated when it comes out!
